Detox Your Makeup Bag! Here's why and how...
TOSS & REPLACE #4: EyelinersJust like lips, the eyes are extremely delicate and should be treated with the utmost care. Yet again, profit often trumps purity. Too many brands formulate their eyeliners with petrochemicals like mineral oil and petroleum; the cheapest way to achieve a creamy, smooth texture and exceptional staying power. The same results can be achieved with the use of slightly more expensive natural oils that feel much gentler on skin.Eyeliners can also be contaminated with heavy metals. Often, these are contaminants present in trace amounts in the minerals and dyes used to give eyeliners their color and pigmentation. More rarely, they're added on purpose. Aluminum, for example, can find its way in your eyeliner through the use of synthetic additives that prevent smudging.While harder to achieve in a pencil format, it is possible to formulate an eyeliner that is free of these ingredients while retaining the creamy texture and intense color payoff that we expect from a luxury beauty collection.
